Before the Storm!

I captured some footage of the grey skies and lightning yesterday evening as it prepared to storm here. It was still and warm when I first got here, but the storm quickly brought a beautiful breeze that made the trees and wind chimes dance with gratitude.

As we enter into this busy week (hoping you all are able to join us onsite or tune in for Head of the Year!) thank God for the storm that stirs the waters and blows away the old, bringing in the new. Let it invigorate and refresh you, and may you worship Him as creation does in the midst of the storm. Find your joy and dance in the rain!

Blessings!
Tracey

    Seeing and hearing The Garden is doing something very deep inside with each of these recent videos. I am feeling more connected to and so much closer to God and GOZ and all you wonderful folks who share Him so beautifully with us. I cry tears with each video every time i replay them. Thank you so very much for your kindness in sharing and patience, expertise and obvious love in making these videos. I awoke in the night signing and singing in my heart I Come to the Garden Alone…
    I come to the garden alone,While the dew is still on the roses, And the voice I hear falling on my ear The Son of God discloses.

    Refrain – And He walks with me, and He talks with me, And He tells me I am His own;
    And the joy we share as we tarry there, None other has ever known.

    He speaks, and the sound of His voice, Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
    And the melody that He gave to me, Within my heart is ringing.

    I’d stay in the garden with Him, Though the night around me be falling,
    But He bids me go; through the voice of woe, His voice to me is calling.

    So refreshing to my soul! Thanks for sharing this. I am so excited to be coming there for head of the year. Sweet of our Lord to wash the garden with the glorious rain.
    He is making everything new for the new year!

    When change comes and we embrace it, it is so refreshing. The change of heart, mind and will, to get to that place is a work of grace and obedience in dying.
